Zodiac: Western Virgo + Chinese Rat
Medium: Ballpoint pen, colour pencils, and Photoshop CS2 (for a little leveling, flower pattern, rat coloring, and border)
A simple drawing interpreting the Zodiac theme. I originally thought of drawing a Virgo female, but I also wanted to acknowledge my Chinese zodiac, hence the (pet?) rat. I also tried putting in some symbolisms: The color blue and the flower aster are associated with Virgo. I also found out that I'm a Wood Rat (1984), hence the wood-ish color of the rat (-> it's a Cinnamon ^_^).

* I originally wanted to draw in an Art Nouveau-ish style but it's taking me too damn long (only got to the hair and robe part). ^^"
